17 pagesDate: February 29, 2024


Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the context of education is the mode of education that uses technology to improve the learning process and enhance interaction with the students. The Covid 19 pandemic has made the usage of technology in imparting knowledge more crucial in the last two years. There has been continuous investment in ICT in the higher education, however the adoption rates have not been very promising. On further investigation into poor technology adoption rates, it was revealed that even though teachers play a very crucial role in the ICT adoption in education, but there is a considerable gap between the expectations and how ICT is used in their daily teaching and learning processes. It has become the need of the hour to study and analyze why few teachers are more prone to adopting technology in their work area. The integration of technology into education is found to be significantly dependent on the attitude and personality traits of the teachers. The objective of the article is to understand why certain people in academics adopt technology more than others and the investigate on the possibility of a relationship between the individual personality trait and the adoption behavior of teachers in higher education. The paper concludes with hypothesis around the relationship between personality traits and ICT adoption in academics along with studying the impact of moderating elements that would influence the relationship.
